GLENN: I want to play Robert Gibbs and the audio that happened yesterday. Who is asking him this question yesterday, Pat?

PAT: One of the reporters on at MS I mean I think NBC.

GLENN: NBC reporter.

PAT: Yeah.

GLENN: Asked Robert Gibbs about the Slaughter rule which will be the way they pass healthcare without voting on it. So, in other words, you don't have to vote on it. You just pass this little Slaughter rule and it will it will say it's like we passed it. Now, I don't know for the life of me how anyone is dumb enough to think the American people aren't going to remember that and how these people are actually going to try to look you in the eye and say, oh, no, no, no, I didn't vote for that. I just voted for the Slaughter rule. No, I didn't vote for healthcare reform. I'm thinking about this and I hear Robert Gibbs and this exchange.

VOICE: Do you believe the Deem and Pass scenario constitutes an up or down vote?

GIBBS: I think that I think that you're going to ask people how they stand on healthcare. You're not going to ask them how they stand on Deem and Pass. You're going to have a vote count that constructs not the process for the rule but where you are on healthcare.

GLENN: Stop, stop, stop. Then why would you do Deem and Pass? Why would you do that? We're going to ask about healthcare, not Deem and Pass. Remember, first they wanted to do it by the the right way. First Barack Obama says, you know, there's no way you can do this with 51 votes because you won't be able to rule like that. You won't be able to rule like that, won't be able to govern like that. So, we can't do it where 51 votes. Well, they couldn't do it with 60. Now they're just trying to do it with 51 votes. They couldn't get 51 votes. So, then they decide, well, we'll just do reconciliation. We'll just we'll just pass it by the House. Well, no, no. Then that wouldn't work. So, then what? So, then they go from reconciliation to Deem and Pass, the Slaughter rule. But before they say that, they say we just want a straight up or down. We just want a straight or or down vote, yes or no. We just thumbs up, thumbs down. They can't get that. Deem and Pass. By hook or by crook, anyway they can and she pushes him on it.

Voice: up or down vote, you would be satisfied with this Deem and Pass bill?

GIBBS: I think that again, I think that again, I think there are many that would want to inflate this process into something that's different than the product.

VOICE: Pelosi said, and I'm quoting, I like it, this scenario, because people don't have to vote on the Senate bill.

GIBBS: I would ask for

VOICE: (Inaudible.)

GIBBS: I would ask one of her capable spokespeople on what she had to say.

VOICE: Okay. Wait all right. But would you say there seems to be some inconsistency between what she says and having an up or down vote?

GIBBS: (Inaudible.)

VOICE: Okay. Then real quickly do you would you agree that it exacerbates the perception that his is a dirty or underhanded process?

GIBBS: No, no. Of course not.

VOICE: And, now, scattered showers of journalism.

GLENN: Well, it was.

PAT: It was.

GLENN: Yeah. It was nice. It was somebody from NBC, too.

PAT: Savannah Guthrie is her name and for him to say, as you just went through the whole process of how they've been trying to get this thing passed and then for them to do this sleazy maneuver and claim that nobody cares about the process, it's just don't even worry about the process. The process isn't important. It's just whether or not we get this thing passed.

GLENN: We played the audio of Chuck Schumer yesterday. Can we play the audio again? Here's Chuck Schumer behind closed doors in a conference on you know, look. There's a lot of things that we can do and not just on this but, you know, sure, we need we need two thirds to be able to pass anything, you know, to change any of the rules in the Constitution but we've got some other ideas. Here he is.

SCHUMER: This is something that people have looked at (inaudible.) So, you can't just rush it out. You have to really study it carefully and that's what the hearing (inaudible) and the rules committee who has jurisdiction over what this is intended to. There have been some very interesting papers written that said that the Constitutional right, for instance, of the Senate to make its own rules supercedes the two thirds that you can't change the rules but only when Congress writes new rules at the beginning of each Congress, every two year period where we reorganize ourselves.

PAT: Wow.

SCHUMER: That's something we want to explore.

PAT: I'll bet. I'll bet.

GLENN: That's, by the way, exclusive audio, taped by the friend of the program. There's exclusive audio for you of we'll play by any rules that we want. Now, here's, here's where I want to go. I want you to listen to this. This is the fundamental transformation of America. This is it. This is it. The reason why this is hook or crook is because they've got to they will do whatever they can, because all of their power is here. It is in this bill. This is it. This is the moment of transformation.

Now, I ask you to do two things. First it you to answer does it make sense that they would pass this in way, shape, or form and they would blame it on the Republicans. They're not bribing the Republicans. I don't know if they know this, but Dennis Kucinich is not a republican. They're bribing the Democrats. There won't be a single republican voting for this bill and if there is, that republican will be voted out of office, guaranteed. So, this is a 100% democratic bill. The benefits don't start in until between 2014 and 2015. Your tax burdens and everything else begin immediately. So, how do they expect to be reelected?

Now, I guess the answer be can be, well, because they think we're stupid and maybe that's it. Maybe that's it. But I think it is more likely that this has so much power and control in it, they're not worried about elections. But if it is this important and it is going to tear this country in half, it is going to destroy healthcare. If it is truly this important and you truly believe in it, put your name on it; but they don't want to do that. Nancy Pelosi likes this idea because that way you don't have to have your name on it. Let me just read portions of the last part of the Declaration of Independence.

In every stage of these oppressions, we have petitioned for redress in the most humble terms. Our repeated petitions have been answered only by repeated injury. A prince whose character is, thus, marked by every act which may define a tyrant is unfit to be the ruler of free people. Nor have we been wanting inattentions for our British brethren. We have warned them from time to time of attempts by their legislature to extend the unwarrantable justification of jurisdictions over us. We have reminded them of the circumstances of our immigration and settlement here. We have appealed to their native justice. We have conjured them by the ties of our common kindred to disavow the use of these usurpations. They, too, have been deaf to the voice of justice. We, therefore, must denounce our separation, hold them as we hold the rest of mankind, enemies in war, in peace, friends. We, therefore, the representatives of the United States of America, in general Congress assembled, appealing to the supreme judge of the world, do in the name and by the authority of the good people of these colonies, do solemnly publish and declare that these united colonies are and of right ought to be free and independent.

Now, when they write that it ought to be totally dissolved, that they now have all the power, these men, no different than the members of Congress now except maybe in honor and integrity and spine. They knew when they signed this it was not that they were going to be voted out of office when they signed this after they had done everything they could. When they signed this, they knew it would be a death warrant! We will hang together or we will hang separately, but we will hang. And one by one they put their name on it. John Hancock's signature is the size that he the is because he said he wanted the king to be able to see his name without putting his spectacles on. They knew it was a death warrant and this Congress is so unlike any Congress we have ever had. This Congress is so unlike our founders that they don't even want their name on healthcare! The first Congress, which was no different, it had its bad apples in it, it had its problems, they wrote, and in support of this declaration with firm reliance on the protection of divine providence. What do you think they meant by protection? It wasn't SEIU they were worried about being protected from. It wasn't the unions that they thought would protect them. They were worried about their own life and they knew God would protect them, because they were living and doing moral and just things, out in the open, with their names on it. That's why they could, in the end, in the last line before their names, and in support of this declaration with a firm reliance on the protection of divine providence, we mutually pledge to each other our lives, our fortunes, and our sacred honor.

There is no transparency when it comes to the Biden administration, and Texas Republican Sen. Ted Cruz's recent exchange with the FBI’s Jill Sanborn is just another example. When questioned about alleged involvement the FBI had on January 6, 2021, Sanborn refused to answer almost every single time.

Do our government officials still work for us? Take a look at the latest headlines: The DOJ and U.S. Army are preparing for possible conflicts with "domestic terrorists," Biden's education secretary allegedly requested the NSBA letter that suggested treating upset parents like domestic terrorists, and President Biden said if you're not with him on the Democrats' voting bills, then you're with the Confederacy. Meanwhile, the FBI won't tell Congress whether it was involved in the the Jan. 6 Capitol riot and the corporate media insists that there's nothing to see here, especially concerning Ray Epps.

The American people are concerned, and it’s "extraordinarily disturbing" how far the federal government goes to avoid answering our questions, Glenn Beck said on the radio program. There's a very odd growing trend here: Our leaders, including the unelected ones, no longer answer to the people. This must stop now.

"The question that I have is, where is the transparency? And is anyone going to be held accountable? They are not afraid of our senators. They are not afraid of Congress," he stated. "This has got to stop. They have got to answer to the law. This is an oversight committee. Who is in charge, the FBI or the people? Once the people are not in charge and are not allowed to see the secret documents, we are toast. Toast!"

Have you ever wondered why so many insane things are happening simultaneously RIGHT NOW? Big corporations are going woke. The stock market got red-hot during a FORCED recession. Stores like Walmart and Target were allowed to stay open during the lockdown, but mom-and-pop stores on Main Street had to close, some of them forever.

On Wednesday's "GlennTV" special, Glenn Beck explains it all in this sneak-peek episode — a primer to his new book and the upcoming explosive, in-depth special: “The Great Reset: Joe Biden & the Rise of 21st-Century Fascism.” Co-author Justin Haskins joins along with Glenn’s head writer and researcher, Jason Buttrill, to answer audience questions about a topic that the media has tried to censor and “fact-check.” You will be equipped with everything you need to know about what the global elites of the world have planned for the transformation of society and YOUR life.

After new information came out that suggests Dr. Anthony Fauci intimidated and bribed scientists into dismissing the COVID-19 lab-leak theory, Sen. Rand Paul and Fauci got into a heated debate in a Senate hearing. But instead of providing answers, Fauci accused Sen. Paul of endangering him.

Sen. Paul joined "The Glenn Beck Program" Wednesday with his response and explained why he believes "people live in fear of what [Fauci] will do to them."

"It's all about money. If you cross Tony Fauci, you don't get your money. He controls the purse strings for the entire country, the entire university system. And he's been doing it for forty years," Sen. Paul began.

"It's consistent with his arrogance, this level of arrogance that he's developed. He said several weeks ago, that he is science and any attack on him is an attack on science. Yesterday, he said anybody who opposes him is encouraging death threats," he added.

"Look, I've been on the receiving end of semi-automatic gunfire. I was 20 yards away from Steve Scalise when he almost died. I was 10 feet away from a staffer that was shot. And, you know what? The guy doing the shooting was a Bernie Sanders supporter. But not one of us, not one of the Republicans on the ball field, said, 'Oh, it was Bernie Sanders' fault.' But that's the juvenile level of personal attack that Fauci is now stooping to. He is saying that the personal threats he gets are actually the fault of his critics."

Sen. Paul continued, "But the thing is, [Fauci] needs to answer the question. Everything he did in the committee yesterday was misdirection so he didn't have to answer the question. The question was, why did he smear three scientists from Stanford, Oxford, and Harvard? Why did he smear them as fringe epidemiologists? And why did he conspire against Francis Collins to take them down in a very public way? He wouldn't answer the question."

Over the past year, an increasing number of voices on the left have pushed for radical changes to our way of life, from reforming capitalism to enacting strict vaccine mandates. But are the American people behind these changes? A recent poll from the Heartland Institute and Rasmussen sought to find out, and the results are startling. The three-part poll asked likely voters for their thoughts on the Great Reset (half said they don't know what that is), COVID-19 authoritarianism, and whether they prefer former President Donald Trump or President Joe Biden.

The Heartland Institute's Justin Haskins joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to break down the results of this exclusive poll, including the disturbing revelation that roughly half of Democrats polled supported shockingly authoritarian COVID-19 policies. For example, nearly half of Democrats polled said they think federal or state governments should require unvaccinated people to live in "designated areas or facilitates," or essentially camps. Nearly half of Democrats supported a proposal "to fine or imprison individuals" just for questioning the efficacy of the existing COVID-19 vaccines on social media, television, radio, or in online or digital publications. And, when asked if people who refuse to get vaccinated should lose custody of their children, 20% of Democrats answered "yes."

But the poll showed some good news, too. Watch the video clip below for more details:


Glenn and Justin’s new book, ‘The Great Reset: Joe Biden And The Rise Of 21st Century Fascism’ is available to order now.
